For the fifth episode of MDOT’s new podcast, Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs, Jr. spoke with co-hosts Paul Katool and Waverly McCarthy about the importance of infrastructure and it’s impact on economic development.

MDOT launched the podcast in June and has covered issues like work zone safety, MDOT’s role in hurricane response and intermodal planning.

“There is so much that happens here at MDOT, especially behind the scenes, that many people never hear about; our agency has so many moving parts, from project planning and bidding, intermodal, traffic control, our digital messaging signs, and they all work together in different ways to keep the traveling public safe and moving,” said MDOT Executive Director Brad White. “We believe this podcast will answer many transportation questions and help Mississippians better understand how MDOT works.”
